IC Capture shows a frame delivery statistic in its status bar. This information is very helpful in case there are issues with frame drops or no images are delivered.

The meaning of the four numbers is

  • Packet Loss during transmission.
  • Driver Transform issue, e.g. computer to slow
  • DirectShow Graph issue, e.g. computer to slow
  • Unknown

The Packet Loss during transmission can be caused by:

  • Bandwidth issues, if more than one camera is connected to one bus. In this case, reduction of frame rates of the cameras can solve the issue.
  • Bad cables.
  • USB 3 on desktop computer's front side connectors: never use them for cameras.
  • Power saving on the controller or bus. Disable them.
